Clients ask us is there anything I can do to make my hair grow quicker and longer?
There are 4 stages of a hair cycle
Anagen (Growing Phase) The growing phase lasts 2-7 years and determines the length of our hair and yes this is a genetic gift as is our hair colour, thickness and thinning.
Catagen(Transition Phase) Lasts 10 days. The hair follicle shrinks and detaches from the dermal papilla.
Telogen (Resting Phase) This is the resting phase which lasts around three months. Around 10-15 percent of hairs are in this phase. Whilst the old hair is resting, a new hair begins the growth phase.
Exogen (New Hair Phase) This is part of the resting phase where the old hair sheds and a new hair continues to grow. Approximately 50 to 150 hairs can fall out daily, this is considered normal hair shedding.
Most importantly you must get rid of your split ends for your hair to grow. It will simply continue to split.
How to prevent split ends.
The main two causes of split ends
1. Don’t brush wet hair it causes hair to split unless it is a specialised wet brush, or use a large tooth comb (ends first up to roots)
2. Turn those smoothers down and use heat protection, you’re frying your hair causing undernourished frazzled frizzy splitting ends… Question what do you cook on 220 degrees!! Think of your hair as an expensive silk blouse.
3. Invest in salon quality shampoo, treatments and conditioner to hydrate, protect which in turn will encourage growth.
